On 8 December 2015 Pope Francis opened the holy door in the atrium of St Peter's Basilica in Rome. With this act he inaugurated the Jubilee Year of Mercy. God, the Pope said, “never tires of casting open the doors of his heart and of repeating that he loves us and wants to share his love with us. The Church feels the urgent need to proclaim God’s mercy.”
Pat Coyle speaks to Fr Gerry Whelan SJ in Rome about Pope Francis's apostolic exhortation on the family, Amoris Laetitia. This document, Gerry remarks, is more significant, more ground-breaking, than a cursory reading of it would suggest. Gerry lectures in Theology in the Gregorian University, Rome.
DERMOT ROANTREE :: The moral approach advocated in 'Amoris Laetitia' is about putting God's mercy first in all pastoral situations, not (as some have claimed) about accommodating the sexual revolution.
